Deutsche Börse and Microsoft reach cloud milestone
May 6, 2019

Deutsche Börse reports this morning (May 6) that it and Microsoft have reached a significant milestone by closing a contract for the adoption of cloud services in the financial services industry. With this agreement, both partners are setting new contract standards in the EU financial services industry, allowing the launch of regulated workload on Microsoft cloud services in Europe.

Deutsche Börse says it will use Microsoft cloud services, including the cloud platform Azure as well as Microsoft 365, the cloud offering for office and collaboration tools. 

Regulated workload includes services that are typically provided by financial institutions themselves and is considered essential for the respective core business. Operating these workloads in a cloud environment requires adherence to national and EU regulation. The contract closed by Deutsche Börse and Microsoft addresses these regulatory requirements. Deutsche Börse says this agreement positions it at the forefront of cloud adoption in the European financial services industry.
